Matthew Obbie Atkinson, 21, died in a tragic accident on June 21.
He leaves behind a legacy of love for the outdoors and passion for service to others. Matt gave selflessly to friends, family, the poor and needy and cared for animals lovingly throughout his brief but rich life. His love for the outdoors, marksmanship and fishing took him on adventures in deserts and forests across the country.
Matt is survived by his parents, Joe and Fran and his brothers, Blake, Grant and twin brother Luke.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday at First United Methodist Church, Central & Missouri, 5510 N. Central, Phoenix, AZ 85012.
